News: Royals second baseman Omar Infante is still being bothered by shoulder issues, according to the Kansas City Star.

Infante admitted that he's had pain all season. "When I swing in BP, I feel a lot of pain," Infante said. "I can’t swing really hard. I feel bad, because all year, I’ve felt something." Infante does not participate in pre-inning throwing, as he wants to save his bullets for when he needs them. Despite the issue, manager Ned Yost has not shied away from using Infante as a starter in the playoffs. After the season, Infante plans to have the injury examined. "When the year is over, we’ll have to check everything," he said. "I want to come back next year to feel good. This year has been very tough for me."
